Show Off Your Dashboards!


#286

All these dashboards are amazing!! This is just my lowly heat circulation dashboard. Shows all my temp sensors and blower/fan automation.


#287

Nothing better than real time data... Using 'Snapshot', 'Follow Me' and 'What did I say'.


#288

Love seeing all of these dashboards! For those who have gone above and beyond how much time did you invest in creating them?


#289

Hard to tell here, as I tweak it as I get new ideas :stuck_out_tongue:

Some examples from what I've been changing lately.
I might get TTS working on this and Brian's voice (as close as I can get to Jarvis :joy: )

Resolution is better on the tablet itself, rather than my PC, and the Jarvis thing is a gif, so swirls in and out. :slight_smile: It'll be the one for now, until I get bored and change again lol.

You put a pretty strongly worded warning message on the real time option in SnapShot. This dashboard suggests you are tracking lots and lots of items in real time. Any idea what gets into risky category? I set up SnapShot with 25+- contact sensors. And used the new option of only showing on. But went with 2 minutes rather than real time. You think that it would be safe to go real time?


#291

There is no magic number on how many devices you can track in real time. Everybody's system is different, different type of devices, different apps...way too many variables to say.

I track a lot of devices with snapshot, device manager, abacus - intense counting, abacus - time traveler and others (I like data!) without trouble. I can't guarantee your system will do the same, so the warning is there.

With that said, all you can do is try it and see how it goes.

"Brian Take your meds" - Now that's a handy reminder. Explains the crazy amount of apps you've put out lately. :stuck_out_tongue:

Seems you've got your house nagging your family for you as well lol.


#293

started playing with the idea of using frames with the dashboard.. is there any way to remove/hide the header on a dashboard? can see in pic, the issue with the "lower menu" iFrame....


#294

My first shot at a lighting dashboard overlayed on the floorplan - this being the main floor. Positioning the tiles is a real pain - I ended up using 36 columns by 24 rows to get somewhat close to the granularity I wanted to position tiles. It still leaves a bit to be desired. Please excuse the blue - I was attempting to match Lutron's blue for the dimmers and switches - just for fun. I think I will go with something a little more subtle for a final version.

You can tell which room is my office - it's the one with the light on!

@bptworld I am loving your snapshot app and tiles. I am working with a white background dashboard. Something in HE changes when you select to white, the tile colors changes, they get softer, try it on yours.

In any case, with the green color font on the snapshot tile, there some sort of shadowing on the font that actually makes it hard to read.

Is the font shadow part of your device type or part of something in HE?

#296

Definitely not something I'm doing. :grin:

The only font style I have in the code is size and color.


#297

@patrick, same question to you then?

see last two posts please.

thanks @bptworld


#298

I'm seeing the same thing on the white background - it's like a drop shadow around the letters.


#299

There is a font shadow effect on text. This could be turned off in custom attribute by overriding the css style.


#300

Hi @patrick , thanks for the quick reply after hours. Are there instructions for this? When I go to edit the template, I do not see a css style sheet editor.

Shadow is not nearly as bad with a white font, even on the same tile and back ground colors.

Nor does it show up as intense on the black background and the darker default tile color

#301

That was more for the custom driver to edit and apply custom styles. There isn't a built in css editor.


#302

What... the... crap. Mind blown. This is the coolest thing I have seen with dashboards. What did you use to make the floor plan? Please tell me it's free/open source and painless to use.


#303

You just import your own floorplan as the background of your dashboard. Then you use an extremely large number of tiles across and down. Then you have to play with position and size for every tile until it matches what you want. If you notice though, some of the sliders are so short they're complete unusable. Not a very easy implementation. Probably hour and hours or work. And you have to have the floor plan (or make one).


#304

I don't have a floor plan but I'm assuming he knows how to make one. That's the part I want somebody to tell me about.


#305

If you’ve no floor plan then you’re going to have to get friendly with a tape measure and something like Google Sketchup.
You just have to start in one corner of your home and start measuring walls & doorways. :+1:t2::stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:
